Peaceful Tuscan Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our time in this lovely cottage. The house is just a short walk to Chianni's shops and gorgeous restaurants, but it is very secluded and peaceful, so you feel like you are in a remote location. It is a perfect place to unwind. The house is well equipped, clean, has loads of individual touches, and has everything you need. The garden has a stunning view of the Tuscan hills all the way to Volterra. Miria, the owner, gave us lots of information and advice and let us feel very welcome.

Would highly recommend this accommodation. Lots of extra little touches making it a really lovely place to stay.The owner, Miria, and her family are very helpful and friendly, over and above expectations. Very peaceful location but within walking distance of Chianni, a small, charming village with 2 bars, 2 mini markets and a couple of restaurants. The pizza restaurant is well worth a visit! Chianni is an ideal base from which to tour Tuscany. I would highly recommend this property.

A perfect place for a holiday in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My mum and I spent 6 days in this lovely farm-house, rented to us by a very sweet and profesional landlady. We had a perfect time staying here. The house is well equipped, has a very tasteful interior and lot of air and space - also if you where staying more than two persons!

The surroundings of the house is very beautiful too. There is a big outside area with opportunities to enjoy your meals outside with a perfect view of the landscape!

Additionally there is only 5 min walk to the village of Chianni, which is a wonderful little place (second time I am visiting Chianni). Here you will find the italien atmosphere of the ages. You can go for walks, you can do Italian grocery shopping in small shops, enjoy coffee at the local coffee bar or have an original italien dinner at one of the two restaurants of the village or the pizzeria - but remember the dictionary if going for pizza, everything is written in Italien :) Also the village is located in the near of Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Volterra, the sea etc - which gives you a lot of opportunities for one day trips! All in all we really enjoyed our days at this place. It gives you great opportunities of a lovely holiday in Tuscany.

Owner's Response: Was with great pleasure that we welcomed Laura and her mom in our house. We appreciated their great sensitivity, respect, enthusiasm and curiosity about everything around them. I clearly perceived their ability to enter happily in tune with the beauty of the landscape, art, nature, perfume, "silences" of the Tuscan countryside and ... the kitchen italiana. Un grande saluto e buon proseguimento a te e tua mamma Miria

Très bel endroit pour des vacances paisibles

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette belle location aménagée avec beaucoup de soin. Elle est au calme mais à proximité du village, et très bien située pour visiter la région et de nombreux sites magnifiques. Un grand merci aux propriétaires très sympathiques et accueillants qui ont été de bon conseil pour les lieux à découvrir à proximité. Ce sera un plaisir d'y retourner.
